Jeremy Irons Draws Squiggly Line Between Gay Marriage and Incest

English thespian Jeremy Irons, who believes men should touch women's butts at will, is slightly concerned about this gay marriage business. "I don't know. It's a very interesting one, that. And I don't really have a strong feeling," he told HuffPost Live last night, failing to leave it at that. "It seems to me that now they're fighting for the name and I worry that it means somehow we debase, or we change, what marriage is. I just worry about that."

"Could a father not marry his son?" he added. Well, actually ... no.

Presented with the fact that incest laws cover that part, Irons argued, "It's not incest between men. Incest is there to protect us from inbreeding, but men don't breed, so incest wouldn't cover that." He continues on with this hypothetical, immune to reason.

"Living with another animal, whether it be a husband or a dog, is great," said Irons, without really diving into the bestiality argument that usually comes next, thankfully. "It's lovely to have someone to love. I don't think sex matters at all. What it's called doesn't matter at all."

"I don't have a strong feeling either way," he offered again at the end. Considering he has absolutely nothing to gain from spouting off like this, that probably would've done in the first place.
